Kingfisher Airlines Staffs Write to Modi, Seeks Help to Recover Their Dues

New Delhi: Hundreds of unpaid employees of the defunct Kingfisher Airlines have written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, seeking his intervention in the recovery of their dues which was estimated to be around Rs 300 crore.

"On behalf of all the employees of erstwhile Kingfisher Airlines, we request you for your immediate intervention in helping us recover our hard earned dues," the employees said in the letter sent to Prime Minister today.

Kingfisher Airlines had started its operations in 2005. Two years later it had acquired the then low-cost Air Deccan. It was grounded in October 2012 by its chairman Vijay Mallya due to non-availability of funds.

It lost the flying permit in December 2012.

According to the letter, there were about 7000 direct as well as indirect employees who were affected by the closure of Kingfisher Airlines and majority of them cannot even afford to fight it out in the courts.
